Warzone & Cause for alarm - Black and blue and still true Vol.1 (1995)

Cause for alarm
01. Reflection
02. Beyond birth and death
03. Eyes of war
04. Prison life
01. Bullshit authority
02. Do you know what you're fighting for?
03. (She's a) Skinhead girl warrior
04. Free at last

Released by Victory Records in 1995.

Warzone finally found their sound again even if its a bit more punk this time around. This time with fellow HC legends in Cause for alarm. Both bands have a clear HC punk sound on the split that i welcome after to many years of Warzones noizy hardcore and bad overproduced metal crap. I know i never grew up with Warzone but this is the sound that i prefer by the band.

Cause for alarm delivers four ok songs with good drums and all but they dont really have a sound that captivates me.
Warzone has added a pinch of Oi! into their sound for this record, a choice i welcome with open arms. Great singalong parts in the choruses and Raybeez in his prime. Their first song is called Bullshit authority (no its not another song against Spanish bullfighting) that starts off with PIANO!!!! though they dont include the piano in the rest of the song to my great disappointment. Second song is called Do you know what you're fighting for? and is the best song on the whole split.
All in all a good record and a good showcase of Warzones things to come.
This record is still availible for purchase at:

  1. A great record, this was back then when I was 14 years old my first WARZONE release and I still love it!!! To me it always seems that a lot of 'the guys' out there totally missed out on this record here and so it's good to see that it's finally up here 'for all of them'.
    Ah, and thanks for not mentioning "SKINHEAD GIRL WARRIOR". I mean, truly and still a great anthem but it's one of the biggest 'song-bitches' ever and thanks to much too many (mostly terrible) cover versions I can't even stand the original one today anyhow.
